                                      SPY REPORT

     It is I, Novgorodny Vir, Spymaster of Spymasters.  Look on my work, ye mighty, 
and despair!  Nothing works for a team like victory (How's that for a perceptive 
observation?) as ARENA FELINES can attest...  Practice pays for HEARTS, who pummelled 
THE CHIROPRACTOR, to pocket 13 points.  Win some, lose some.  Speaking of which, 
HEARTS was winsome, after beating THE CHIROPRACTOR and seeing him lose 4 points.  A 
certain someone saw BUD SMITH at The Elefont with the shakes, and now he fails to 
show up to defend his throne.  What a pathetic slob!  In OSKSI, nothing is permanent 
(except Death), and we find ourselves a new Duelmaster, THE GOALIE.  Word has it one 
team in OSKSI is taking speech lessons to try to bore their opponent to death.  I'll 
bet it works.   
     My mother wished me to avoid conflict, and seek the gentle trade of Spyreporter. 
But warriors aren't supposed to avoid fights!   
     Like the wind whispering among the pines, do hearest I many disquieting rumors.  
Oh hard!  that to strike a flame, the match itself must needs be wasting!   
     Leave me now, you base fools!  More important duties call me.  Do not despair!  
I shall return!-- Novgorodny Vir

Bud Smith -- You just HAD to do that, didn't you?  Defeating an outgoing Lord
Protector is definitely... Not Hoyle
P.S.  My INSURANCE has lapsed?  I'm a Lord Protector, how can my insurance lapse?

Smokey -- (cough, cough)  That kind of thing (hack, cough) can ruin your wind, you
know. -- The Goalie

Hodur -- It says here on the cue card that I'm supposed to claim I did you a service
by destroying your undefeated record, which would otherwise have made you a target
for headhunters.  Yeah, right!  Like I care about that!  What *I* was doing was
getting myself a winning record, and damn its effect on yours! -- Mumbledy Peg

Ghost of Eolis -- Oh, my DEAR friend, I did not desire that outcome!  I am sure it
was due to a problem with your diet, you know.  A dwarf shouldn't be that tall, and
whatever you were eating to become so must have weakened you. -- Hearts, heart-broken

27 June 2005
ATTENTION ALL YOU ALLIANCE-TYPE PEOPLE:
For the purposes of tourney newsletter alliance listings (when I am able to do them),
you may only be listed in ONE alliance.  In other words, you have to choose!  If you
are a part of Englebert's Alliance and Englebert's Alliance is "part" of Ruthrauf's
Alliance, I will list you EITHER as part of Englebert's Alliance OR as part of
Ruthrauf's Alliance, NOT both.  The default would be the top-level alliance,
Ruthrauf's, in this example.  If you'd rather be listed separately, let me know and I
will do so, but that will be the only listing you get. -- The Saint, keeper of ever-
more-complicated lists

29 Jun 2005
The Company of Brothers (TCB) welcomes two new members to our alliance...Liam the
Goth and Buddy Lee.  We have no doubt that they will prove to be assets to our
alliance and the general dueling community. -- Baphomet, co-founder, T.C.B.
